Isn't it wonderful when you come home and learn that your exposure was spot on? I'm real happy for you, Al. The more so because these are terrific images. If you ask me, the last two deserve a frame. Great shooting.

Other than sunshine Al, you couldn't have had more perfect conditions... as beautiful as the owls are, the complimentary BGs with the heavy snow is awesome... I would carry that wide angle, landscape lens as a good luck charm... ;)... Grand images my friend.

More superlatives here, Al. I can't even imagine coming across 3 Great Greys in one outing. Your last two shots are incredible, my friend, so well done!

Three and Four are definitely my faves of the series, although I like the portrait through the branches as well. I have high hopes that I might see some this winter, but so far no luck!

Thank you all so much for your kind comments. Great Grays have long been a species of special interest for me and so it was especially gratifying to have such a big day with them.

Wow, how did I miss this thread? Superb shots!! I have never seen an owl in the wild, and you guys take some fabulous shots of them! Either you guys are owl whisperers, or I suck.. (probably both.. :))

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.

Excellent shots, especially like 3 and 4. I would be building a frame from weathered wood so fast for #3, all are very nice though.
